Protective Factors: Parental Resilience
The Protective Factors Framework helps professionals who work with children and families in promoting the optimal development of all children while protecting vulnerable children from maltreatment. This in-depth course on Parental Resilience defines the components of parent resilience and how they benefit parents and reduce the likelihood of child abuse and neglect. The course also teaches actions to build parental resilience in the parents you work with and explores the parallel process of self-care. It’s important for professionals who work with children and families to maintain their own resilience in the midst of demanding work. The Strengthening Families Protective Factors Framework is a national and international initiative that aims to develop and enhance five specific characteristics that help The Center for the Study of Social Policy develop the framework with funding from the Doris Duke Charitable Foundation.
